Go with Flow Imagine how you and your guests will maneuver in your living room with all furniture in its proper place. For example, if there are two doors, you may want to place sofas and chairs in a manner that will allow passersby to walk behind or around seating arrangement instead of through it.
If there is only one door to room, don’t block flow with a large coffee table right in way of sofa. Make sure you allow easy access directly to sofa and chairs from door, allowing for some space around seating area as well.
Larger living rooms can be designed so that they function effectively as two areas. For example, have one social, entertainment center seating arrangement in one section, and a quieter study arrangement in another. Tall side tables can be placed behind a sofa with decorative vases and pictures on top, as long as there is still walking space behind couch.
When deciding on how to arrange your living room furniture, listen to your instincts. Wait to decorate walls for a few days or even a week once you have decided on where you are going to put each piece of furniture, to give yourself a chance to get used to new placement. Live in space for a bit, and assess how you feel. If something doesn’t feel right, you can always move it, and use these tips to help you bring your living room back into balance.
